What is retrograde knee?
Osteoarthritis, commonly known as erosive arthritis, is one of the causes of the condition in which the pillow space, such as the normal, between the joints (cartilage) is eroded. When these conditions occur, the bones of the joints are rubbed together and there is less chance of absorbing the shocks injected by the cartilage. The result of this abrasion can be the cause of knee pain, or swelling, stiffening, decrease in the range of motion, and sometimes the formation of extra bone in the area and knee sounding.
The symptoms of knee osteoarthritis often start slowly and intensify over time. Signs and symptoms of knee arthritis include:
Pain: Your joint may have pain during or after it.
Sensitivity to touch: Your joint may cause pain and discomfort when it comes to low pressure.
Rigidity and drying: stiffening of the joints and runny nose, especially when you wake up in the morning or staying for a long time.
Loss of flexibility: In this case, you may not have the ability to completely move your joints.
Wear feeling: You may have a knee joint or a feeling of abrasion in the joint.
Excess bone formation (spurs or bony spines): This excess bone that looks like a hard mass can form around the damaged joint.
The most common cause of osteoarthritis is the rise of the knee. Almost all people over time gradually become afflicted with knee wear. However, multiple factors can increase the risk of knee osteoarthritis symptoms at an early age. The most important of these factors are as follows:
Weight: Weight gain increases pressure on all joints, and in particular knee joints. In this case, each kilo of added weight can add 3 to 4 kilograms of extra weight to the knees.
Heredity: This agent can make a person more exposed to knee osteoarthritis than others. This can be due to inherited problems.
Gender: Women aged 55 and over are more likely to develop knee arthritis than men.
Repeated injuries caused by pressure on the joints: These injuries are usually caused by the type of occupation that the person is occupying. People with special occupations that require joint joints, such as kneeling, squatting, or lifting heavy objects (27k and more), are more likely to develop knee arthritis. In this case, the cause of the problem is the introduction of constant pressure on the joints due to individual occupational activity.
Sports Activities: Performing sports such as soccer, tennis, or marathon can cause a person at a higher risk of developing knee arthritis. This means that the person should have more care to avoid injury to his joints. However, it’s important to note that regular and slow physical activity can boost joints and reduce the risk of arthritis. In fact, weakening of the muscles around the knee can cause a person to develop knee arthritis.
Other Diseases: People with rheumatoid arthritis, the second most common type of arthritis, are more likely to develop knee arthritis. Additionally, people with metabolic problems such as abnormal iron blood uptake or an abnormal growth hormone increase are also more likely to develop arthritis.
The following methods can be used to diagnose knee arthritis:
Radiographic imaging: The condition of the cartilage does not detect using radiographic imaging, but it is possible to detect the destruction of cartilage when there is a narrowing of the space between the bones in the joints. In addition, radiologic imaging can indicate the formation of extra bone (bony sphincter) around a joint. In this way, some people can use radiographic imaging to diagnose arthritis before signs of the disease develop.
I photographed RI: MRI uses radio waves and a strong magnetic field to create accurate shots of its bones and soft tissues, such as cartilage. MRI is not usually needed to diagnose osteoarthritis, but it can provide more information to the physician if complex conditions are present.
Blood tests: Blood tests can determine other factors associated with joint pain such as having a rheumatoid arthritis.
Joint fluid test: The doctor can use a needle to remove the patient’s fluid fluid. Testing this fluid can have a beneficial role in detecting infection or infection (these diseases can cause symptoms such as pain and inflammation in the knee).
Time to visit a doctor
If you have had joint pain or stiffness for more than a few weeks, you should talk to your doctor about this.
The main and definitive methods of treatment for knee arthritis are as follows:
In this method, a jelly-like liquid, called hyaluronic acid, is injected into the knee joint. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in synovial fluid around the joints. It acts as a lubricant, which makes the bones move slowly on each other and act as a bumpers for the loads that enter the joint. In patients with knee osteoarthritis, the concentration of hyaluronic acid is less than normal. The theory is that adding hyaluronic acid to the joint with arthritis facilitates movement and reduces pain.
In the knees with arthritis, the joint fluid called synovial fluid
